More Than the Sun

Matthew and I have this thing – “more than the sun.” It came about after me falling in love with the song More by Matthew West. The song is about how God loves us more than the sun and the stars that he created. So sometimes Matthew and I will just say “more than the sun” as a way to express our love for one another. (I should do a scrapbook page about this). Anyway, I thought I would post the lyrics. I hope they encourage you – wherever you are today.

Matthew West – More Lyrics

Take a look at the mountain
Stretching a mile high
Take a look at the ocean
Far as your eye can see
And think of me

Take a look at the desert
Do you feel like a grain of sand?
I am with you wherever
Where you go is where I am

And I’m always thinking of you
Take a look around you
I’m spelling it out one by one

Chorus:

I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow I’ll say it again and again
I love you more

Just a face in the city
Just a tear on a crowded street
But you are one in a million
And you belong to me

And I want you to know
I’m not letting go
Even when you come undone

Chorus:

I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow I’ll say it again and again
I love you more

Bridge:

Shine for me
Shine for me
Shine on, shine on
Shine for me

Chorus:

I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow I’ll say it again and again
I love you more

I fell in love with this song too in college, Jess. I remember so clearly driving down the road wanting to go straight to the Christian bookstore to find the CD and buy it right away! I really like Matthew’s latest single as well – can’t remember the name of it though…
